Horse Shoe Layout

Horse Shoe Layout #1



Difficulty: Easy

The Horse Shoe is a classic layout. It is more advanced than the three-domino reading, yet simpler than most other layouts. It is a versatile method that can be used for most queries, though there are other layouts which would go into more depth. Like the simple Past, Present, and Future layout, it contains these dominoes in positions #1, #2, and #7, but also has four other dominoes that help the reader understand how to deal with the future better. The dominoes are to be read as follows:

  1. The Past: Past events affecting the question.
  2. The Present: The current state or approaching influence.
  3. Hidden Influences: Things the reader may not be aware of (or barely be aware of).
  4. Obstacles: This is the challenge: obstacles may be avoided or may have to be dealt with.
  5. External Influences: Attitudes and thoughts regarding people around the reader.
  6. Suggestions: Recommended course of action.
  7. Outcome: The result of following the suggestions.

The Past Card represents past events that are affecting the question.



Now is a time to strengthen your family ties. You may even want to consider having a child. Your family life should take precedence. Works involving spiritual communication with ancestors will be tremendously beneficial.





The Present Card represents the current state or immediately approaching influence.



New unions and the strengthening of established unions are just around the corner. These unions may be secular and/or spiritual, and will prove successful. Be open to change, but do not abandon your values. Works of virtue and power are favoured by this sign. Fire activities are highly favoured and increase happiness much, but works involving water, earth, and fixed objects are not at all favourable, even bad.





Hidden Influences - Things that you may not be aware of, or barely be aware of.



Remember that you will reap what you sew. Do not allow yourself to become greedy or totally self-absorbed. To do so will leave you isolated and unhappy, even if you had all the money in the world.












Obstacle - This is the challenge.



New friendships and opportunities will soon be yours. It is possible you will meet a new love, or the love you already have will deepen. However, you must be open to change and dare to take risks.





External Influences - Attitudes about this situation from people around the querent.



The sign of 'the Good Moon' suggests that you will find pleasure without obstacles. Light-hearted activities will be successful, but using too much power or force will not work. White-coloured objects are favoured by this feminine sign.





Suggestion - The recommended course of action.



The eye of transcendental wisdom shall open. The advice of a good friend should be followed, and this will prove very beneficial. Scrying rituals will be fruitful.





The Outcome - What will happen if the suggestion is followed.



This is a sign of great prosperity and wealth. Resources will be vast, and things will be very good. Rituals involving earth and wealth energies and construction of stupas, shrines, and the like are beneficial. Rituals of destruction are not beneficial, and there is a possibility of delay in travel or in switching any plans.
